Choosing the right paint for the sport courts


Choosing good paint is an important step in elevating the looks of buildings, sports courts, and many more. Besides improving appearances, there are several additional uses that paints have. One of the reasons why painting a specific surface is important is to protect the surfaces from rain, insects, solar radiation, and other external radiation. Secondly, painting is also beneficial in terms of maintenance because well-painted surfaces are easier to keep clean and safe.

Next, it has the ability to increase the visual appeal of a surface. When people look at a well-painted surface, it could give them a very good first impression. Other reasons include waterproofing and increasing surface durability.

Choosing the right paint for the sport courts can be quite challenging. There are important points to consider before buying it. In this article, you will find out all you have ever wanted to know about selecting the perfect court paint.

Fun Fact: Tennis court designers stuck with a shade of green when hard courts were first introduced because they looked similar to grass. Until the 21st century, this was the norm. The court surround was usually a different shade of green or red for a complete contrast.

Innovative tournament organizers decided to experiment with different colors to see if this would make things easier. Since tennis balls are a fluorescent yellow-green hue, some organizers believed a different surface color would make it easier to see. This is when blue and sometimes even purple courts became an option. Blue and purple are directly opposite to the color of the ball on the spectrum of colors. They enable people to see the ball most clearly. Combined with better television quality, this enables viewers to see the ball perfectly. Just as the color of the ball has evolved from traditional white to neon yellow, so has the surface of the tournament court.
